“One of the great things about young people is that they do question, that they do care deeply about justice, and they they have open minds.”

Check out more about Zach de la Roche and Rage Against the Machine here.

And folks, let’s have Killing in the Name as a Christmas #1, yeah?  Download the song now, and for the first time in years we’ll be hearing some music with balls after the Queen’s speech … a song about something real, written by people who care.

Quote of the Day: H. G. Wells

December 8th, 2009 • Posted in Quote of the Day |

My daughter has been learning about the Second World War in school (yay for our schooling system!), and I’ve been reading quite a lot about that war lately.  I’ve always been interested in it – I had family at Dunkirk, Singapore, prisoner on the Railway of Death, Africa, and on the Norway raids.  And it’s good to see Ellie’s interest as well.  So many people I know are hardly aware it even happened.

This is one of the best quotes about war I’ve ever heard.  It’s from H. G. Wells, and  it speaks so much of why we do need to tell our kids about what happened.

“If we don’t end war, war will end us.”

Quote of the Day: Harlan Ellison

“Like the wind crying endlessly through the universe, Time carries away the names and the deeds of conquerors and commoners alike. And all that we are, all that remains, is in the memories of those who cared we came this way for a brief moment.”

Quote of the Day: Stephen King

November 23rd, 2009 • Posted in Quote of the Day |

“You can approach the act of writing with nervousness, excitement, hopefulness, or even despair – the sense that you can never completely put on the page what’s in your mind and heart. You can come to the act with your fists clenched and your eyes narrowed, ready to kick ass and take down names. You can come to it because you want a girl to marry you or because you want to change the world. Come to it any way but lightly. Let me say it again: you must not come lightly to the blank page.”

Quote of the Day: Eddie Izzard

November 20th, 2009 • Posted in Quote of the Day |

And to stay with the Izzard theme…

“Pol Pot killed one point seven million Cambodians, died under house
arrest, well done there. Stalin killed many millions, died in his bed, aged
seventy-two, well done indeed. And the reason we let them get away with it
is they killed their own people. And we’re sort of fine with that. Hitler
killed people next door. Oh, stupid man. After a couple of years we won’t
stand for that, will we?”
